Intense and Intentionality: Navigating the Complexities of Hybrid-Flexible Learning Experience
In this activity-packed session, we’ll explore some of the challenges of hybrid-flexible teaching with students physically and virtually present. Through collaborative engagement, reflection, and dialogue, participants will identify some of their individual challenges along with possible strategies to address them while also adding new practices to make the multi-modal/hybrid experience more effective for faculty and students.
